This paper studies  a problem of inverse scattering  on the basis of maximum entropy principle. The advantage of the method implies  maximization of the entropy functional, what is the main condition and the scattering data and any a priory information are considered as constraints. This rephrasing of the problem leads to significant simplifications, since the entropy functional is known to be concave. Other peculiar properties of the method include his stability to various kinds of artifacts and adaptability to various schemes of measurement.
